    Velo Orange Fixed Hubs

    Velo Orange has their new hubs out and they look pretty sweet and very affordable also. They make great stuff and hopefully these hubs will follow the rest of thier products in terms of quality and dependability. Have a look

    Yummy! And for a down to earth price too!

    Philwood better look out. UGh those tsunami relief hubs really put a dent in my free spending money that I'm still trying to buff out.

    I thought the same when I saw them, Phil better look out. My next wheel build will be with those hubs, hopefully in about 2 months.

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    *sniff sniff*

    Do I smell NovaTec? Probably not, as last time their representative came on here to clear things up with their manufacturing site.

    That said, I'd love to lace some Open Pro to their road hubs.

    EDIT:On second thoughts, 32/32 is not my prefer drilling.
